In response to a letter from the All India Students Union, the National Medical Commission has stated that conducting the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) UG twice a year is not feasible. The Commission explained that this is due to all MBBS seats being filled during the counseling process. The decision comes after careful consideration of the practicalities involved in organizing multiple NEET UG sessions annually.
Additionally, the National Medical Commission emphasized that conducting the NEET UG twice a year would impose a significant financial burden and strain on available resources, placing undue pressure on the government. In light of this, the NMC suggested that candidates should consider applying for the medical entrance test in the following year instead. The Commission's recommendation takes into account the financial implications and logistical challenges associated with organizing multiple iterations of the NEET UG examination.
In a recent development, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has rescinded the previously issued guidelines under the Graduate Medical Education Regulations 2023. Instead, the NMC has called for input and feedback from stakeholders concerning the new guidelines for various aspects, including the Competency Based Medical Education Curriculum Regulations 2023, Minimum Standard Requirements for Establishment of New Medical College/ Increase of seats in MBBS Course Regulations 2023, and Maintenance of Standards of Medical Education Regulations 2023. This move reflects the NMC's commitment to ensuring transparency, inclusivity, and collaboration in shaping the regulations governing medical education. Stakeholders are encouraged to provide their valuable insights and opinions regarding the proposed guidelines.
